Also from the advertising and marketing industry in the list of 30 Agents of Change is: Andrew Lawson, UK and Ireland managing director and senior vice-president North Europe, Middle East and Africa, Salesforce; Chris Murphy, group managing director (Europe, the Middle East and South Asia) of ThoughtWorks; and Richard Robinson, managing partner of Oystercatchers.

The goal of the list, writes Campaign's sister publication, Management Today, is to "find the army of male leaders who are tackling inequality at work by changing company cultures, shattering glass ceilings and challenging the status quo."

In the UK, women still earn 18% less than men, while men are 40% more likely to be promoted into senior management roles. With only seven chief executives in the FTSE 100, change has to start with male leaders. 

This year’s Agents of Change power list was judged by MT; Cilla Snowball, chair of the Women’s Business Council; Helene Reardon-Bond of the Government Equalities Office; and Sir Philip Hampton, chairman of GlaxoSmithKline and co-author of the Hampton-Alexander Review on improving gender balance in FTSE leadership.

The recognition includes civil servants, chief executives and entrepreneurs from sectors ranging from teaching to telecoms, food to finance, demonstrating equality is everyone's business.
